History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.
It is not "history" which uses men as a means of achieving -- as if it were an individual person -- its own ends. History is nothing but the activity of men in pursuit of their ends.
History does nothing; it does not possess immense riches, it does not fight battles. It is men, real, living, who do all this.
